comment Euphemism for “a person one really detests / hates”?
@Christian, no I do not wish to curse anyone. I'm looking for an euphemism for the word bastard (for a publication), which means "a person one really detests / hates"

comment What's the opposite of “omniscient”?
@Mr.Mindor Equating omniscient to "having the most knowledge" is an example of the straw man fallacy. "having all knowledge" is not the same as "having the most knowledge". The latter is a superlative and suggests a comparison while the former is simply a neutral adjective. For example, if only five beings ever existed, we can say the five of them are omniscient, but we can't say the five of them are the most knowledgeable because this suggests that there exists less knowledgeable beings.

comment What's the opposite of “omniscient”?
@jmoreno, As I've explained, if there exists only two possibilities (either yes or no, either zero or one), than "opposite" and "complement" refers to the same thing. Put simply, if there's only one thing to know, than the opposite of know-everything (know 1) is know-nothing (know 0), and not knowing everything (know 0) means knowing nothing (know 0). Omniscient is a 1-degree adjective (either you are, or you are not, since you can't be more omniscient or less omniscient than someone who is omniscient) and hence the opposite of omniscient is the same as the complement of omniscient.
